A typical shale-rich outcrop along a highway.



2 & 3  Locality with abundant mollusks. The man who owns the easiest
access / parking (but not the land itself) let me and a friend park
and collect after some discussion and proof that we were harmless.
He has had problems with others using the site for more nefarious
purposes and has called the police on several occasions.
Consequently, he doesn't want to deal with rockhounds. Luckily
there are plenty of other sites to collect without difficulty!
